How to Report an Absence

The parent/guardian is to notify the school office of an absence prior to an absence occurring, the day of an absence, or upon the student's return to school.  Adult students and emancipated students will notify the school office of their absence with a signed note of explanation.

There are three ways you can report an absence

  1. Call (360) 273-5534 x2603
  2. Email
  3. Written signed note

What is good attendance?
Going to school on time, every day, is important.  Consistent attendance will help a student do well in school, college, and work.  Good attendance is missing not more than 1 day of school a month, whether excused or unexcused.
